Stirling Community Care – Out and About - Helping eligible local residents stay connected with their community
Connect 2 Program is a Stirling Community Care program that helps to connect eligible residents in the local community. Residents can socialise in small informal groups of 6 to 7 people supported by staff and volunteers. The groups go out in the bus for short, local outings to cafes, parks, community centres. Transport is provided to and from homes. The groups meet at various times through the week usually between the hours of 8.30am - 12.30 pm.

Adult Day Clubs are located in Nollamara and Stirling, with a centre for people with intellectual disabilities located in Scarborough. Programs at each centre focus on wellness, life skills, educational activities, social and culturally specific activities and opportunities to support participants in maintaining their independence. Our programs also encourage interaction through socialisation, physical and mental stimulation. Programs are developed with input from participants and we have developed a number of specialised groups, such as Nollamara Men’s Group that focuses on male interests and activities. City of Stirling is an approved NDIS provider.
